There are calls for immediate action to deal with the collection of street bins in one of South Tipp’s main tourism towns.

It follows recent incidents in Cahir where the public receptacles were left completely overflowing which it’s feared could impact negatively on the area on several fronts.

Visitor numbers to Cahir Castle are up over 30 percent while tourist figures for The Swiss Cottage has increased by 29 percent

Outgoing Borough Mayor Andy Moloney says the issue over bin pick ups must be addressed now.
